Food Nazis

I see Australia's food nazis are at it again, trying to have the nations school tuck shops sell what the nazis deem to be 'healthy food.'   I guess that means the kids will be able to buy hot lentils with cabbage or cold lentils with lettuce.

Back in my day, I was allowed to buy my lunch once each week It consisted of one gloriously delicious hot meat pie, full of beef mince and gravy, along with two wonderful cream buns.  Not doughnuts, cream buns with a bloody great dollop of mock cream and a squirt of strawberry jam.

The pie cost one shilling and the cream buns were three pence each.

Do you know what?   There were no obese fat kids at that school where sixty percent of the pupils were Maori.   We ran around and did things instead of burying or noses in our bloody phones.

The nazis would do some good if they ware able to mandate at least one hour of active physical exercise each day for every child.   Obesity would disappear inside twelve months.

Hey Adolf this is the lead story on Stuff as I post: 'We won't back down': In an ageing community, the young fight climate complacency

The striking thing about this if you watch the video is how prosperous these kids are. They are well dressed, well fed to the point where many are overweight and they think that marching through town with signs demanding the council sign some inane declaration about climate change will provide a better future for them and their children (if they ever bother to have any) and will "make a difference"

Perhaps even more alarming is this caveat at the bottom of the story introducing the comments thread
"Stuff accepts the overwhelming scientific consensus that climate change is real and caused by human activity. We welcome robust debate about the appropriate response to climate change, but do not intend to provide a venue for denialism or hoax advocacy. That applies equally to the stories we will publish in Quick! Save the Planet and to our moderation standards for reader comments.

Seriously? We are well and truly fucked - these people would sneer at the Catholic Church's dispute with Galileo and think that they are so very very sophisticated, urbane and wise but they are now the high priesthood suppressing ideas that threaten their worldview

My school tuck shop lunch once a week was a meat pie finished off with a custard pie, the one with the cream around the rim. Mmmmmm mmm

I couldn’t eat that now!

Andrei you’re spot on.
